Adnams Lighthouse is developed from our Champion Pale Ale, a beer that won many awards from 1922 to 1980. With an ABV of 3.4%, this classic amber beer delivers a crisp, refreshing taste- With its light fragrance, lovely malt flavours and long hoppy after palate, Adnams Lighthouse shines through as another champion Beer From The Coast.
Cask version released as Pale Champion Ale for the 2009 JDW Festival.

Grumbo (696) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2013
Bottle from a local supermarket. A beer I’ve had a number of times before, but first rating. For a 3.4% beer, it’s pretty good. A nice golden colour, with a fruity aroma and to me a slight hint of honey. Good overall, refreshing beer.

50 cl bottle @ Scandic hotel’s Sauna, Tampere. Rated on 31.12.2010
Aroma is somewhat fruity with hops and some hay. Flavour has fruits, some gooseberry bush, toffee, biscuits and hints of hay. Quite nice and fruity for this ABV.

dogbomb (996) - ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2012
Bottle. Slight haze on this orange beer with a finger of white head. Honey, tangerine and malt nuttiness on the nose. Caramel sweetness with a little orange and grass spicy hoppiness. Easy, smooth quaffing ale. Not one to write home about. Not one to spit out.

reebtogi (4489) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 5, 2012
500ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger and a half of white head that settles to leave some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild caramel and grass. Taste is a light caramel malty sweetness with a grassy hop bitterness. A pretty decent bitter style ale that is drinkable but nothing special.

Cunningham (5085) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 23, 2012
Deep and light dark golden colour with an off white head. Caramel malt aroma with some fruity notes. Rich mild caramel flavour with a pleasant bitterness. Moderate sweetness. Outstanding far an 3,4% beer.

Pyobon (1014) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 22, 2012
Clear copper, decent but loose white head. Aroma is subtle sweet fruit. Light body, bright carbonation. pleasant tangy fruity start, moving to dark toffee malt and then some bitterness in finish. Overall a bit watery and not particularly interesting but quite quaffable.

MichaelAwesome (4913) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 18, 2012
Bottle shared with McTapps. Aroma of some malt and hops. Tastes light and easy with a light bitter end. Just an OK beer.

McTapps (4923) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - SEP 18, 2012
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Light amber in colour, low head. Aroma and taste of roasted grains, cereals and bread. Typical ale, quite good, easy to drink but with too much bitterness for my taste.

seritomi (325) - HUNGARY - AUG 27, 2012
Nagyon szép vörös szín hozzá társuló sűrű bézs habbal. Illata száraz komlós kicsit fanyar. Ízében ez határozott savanykás és erjedt formában jelenik meg. Laza, élénk utóíze közepesen keserű. Vannak jobb bitterek de nem rossz anyag.
